This took 3 months and a trip to Cambridge before I succumbed to nostalgia for the much-loved classic...but i'm 'foosed as to why I recognise this 'newer' cover compared to the slip-of-a-girl TurquoiseFloyd? I will read, wallow in some sentiment and pass on :)

Journal Entry 4 by BookGroupMan from Criccieth, Wales United Kingdom on Thursday, June 14, 2007
From the writer of Winnie the Pooh, the famous bear makes several guest appearances (also the delightful drawings E H Shepard drawings that Disney didn’t quite get right). From the introduction, “PS – Pooh wants us to say that he thought it was a different book; and he hopes you won’t mind, but he walked through it one day, looking for his friend Piglet, and sat down on some pages by mistake.”

I remembered less of this that I thought I would, maybe King John’s Christmas being the exception, “King John was not a good man…And, oh! Father Christmas, if you love me at all, Bring me a big, red india-rubber ball!”

In between the unique nursery rhymes and tales from the imagination of a six year old, there are a few more whimsical poems, which remind me a bit of Lear, possibly part of Milne’s late Victorian/Edwardian childhood?

As I fast approach my 42nd birthday, I found a couple of great bits of philosophy, about the immediacy, the freedom, the unsohisticated joy that childhood can and should be like. Maybe we should all try to connect with our six year old selves again;

The Morning Walk
‘When Anne and I go out a walk/We hold each other’s hand and talk/Of all the things we mean to do/When Anne and I are forty-two./And when we’ve thought about a thing/Like bowling hoops or bicycling/Or falling down on Anne’s balloon/We do it in the afternoon.’

The End
‘When I was One/I had just begun...
But now I am six, I’m as clever as clever. So I think I’ll be six for ever and ever.’
